Children at Victory Primary School's breakfast club will not have to wait long for the toaster to pop with the donation of a new high-speed industrial toaster. The toaster was one of several items, including cutlery and plates for 30 kids, donated to the club by the Rotary Club of Nelson and other supporters. The toaster got its first work- out at the club this week and club member Reann Elkington said it was pretty cool. Volunteer Aimee Birmingham said the club had previously been relying on two toasters bought at a garage sale. The donation of the new toaster, bowls and cutlery was fantastic and would be well-used not just by the club, but by other users of the community centre. Aimee said the toaster was re- conditioned and had been bought by the Rotary Club at Southern Hospitality, who had provided the toaster at a sharp price. It can spit out 370 slices in an hour. Scott Sanders of the Grand Mercure Nelson Monaco had also donated money to the club, which had been put towards the new equipment, she said. Rotary Club member Hec Arbuthnott said his club suppor- ted two schools -- Victory Primary School and Nelson College. The breakfast club was a great cause to support, and the donation would help the school and the community centre. Hec said the rotary club liked to help in the community by support- ing groups with energy and enthusiasm so they could achieve what they wanted to do. The Rotary Club of Nelson had 80 members and donated 11,000 hours a year in voluntary work in the Nelson community. The breakfast club meets before school at the Victory Community Centre on Tuesdays to Thursdays. It relies on volunteers and is funded by public and private sponsorship and donations. It provides on average 60 to 70 breakfasts a week. Intermediate students still dropped in for breakfast and some pre-schoolers also attended. The club gave parents who wor- ked a place for their children to go before school. St Luke's Church on Emano St donated items and Quality Bakers donated a tray of bread a week. Volunteer Matt Lawrey said the new toaster was great as it allowed volunteers making the breakfast to keep the momentum going if they got distracted by other things going on in the kitchen like a massive spill. Matt said in the time he had helped out at the club the variety of breakfast foods children could choose from had improved. If anyone wants to find out more information or donate items to Victory Primary School's break- fast club they can contact Aimee on 545 6518 or 0276 979 9270.
